Amazing 3-Bedroom Garden Condo Near U Of C

Bedrooms 3
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, for 6pp on a quiet, residential block. No parties allowed.

**When sending an inquiry, please let me know how many people will be in your party and what is bringing you to Chicago. Also, please keep in mind there are no parties allowed.**

Nestled in the heart of the up-and-coming, Woodlawn/Hyde park Area. A short 6-minute drive will have you at the beaches & running trails of Lake Michigan, the world-renowned Museum of Science & Industry or US Cellular Field and 15 minutes to Grant Park & downtown, Chicago.

Steps away from the 372-acre Washington Park & the historic University of Chicago School & Hospital. Walking distance to green line el station & Greenline coffee shop. A gated property, on a quiet and safe block.

The area is being revitalized and, although to arrive at the property, depending on your route, you must drive through some less than desirable appearing areas from the expressway, once you arrive, you will find the block to be quite nice.

The building is 4 blocks from the SW border of The University of Chicago campus.

The Space

This comfortable unit is cozy enough to make the big city feel like a country cottage; yet stylish enough to make you feel like you're in a downtown condo. It's the perfect 3-bedroom apartment for a weekend getaway or for a long-term stay, with ample free street parking to boast. Two of the bedrooms have queen size beds. The third bedroom has two twin beds.

Guest Access

The condo will be exclusively yours.

Interaction with Guests

This is a private 3-bedroom unit to which you will have exclusive access. I live on the premises in another private unit and am happy to help in any capacity necessary in advance of or during your visit.

The Neighborhood

The gated building is located on the border of Hyde Park and Woodlawn. It is on a safe and quiet block that feels like more like a suburb rather than a condo in the heart of the city.

Bear in mind, Chicago is very much a block-by-block sort of city. One block could have million dollar homes and just 2 blocks over could be a very different story. My building is situated in a location that lends itself to a very nice and comfortable experience. I've had families with children and single individuals stay at my location. Each of them has enjoyed their stay and I have enjoyed hosting them.

Getting Around

The green line is a short 5-minute walk away which can serve as your access point to the entire city. There are also several buses that run nearby. The closest stop is at the corner of my block.

About Anthony Turner

I'm the youngest of 15 children sort of like the Brady Bunch. My Mom had 6, Dad 3 from a previous marriage and my mom remarried to a great guy who had 6 kids. We all get along swimmingly.

I love to travel the world and love to open my home up to people who enjoy seeing other parts of the world. I work hard to make it a great experience for them.

My first international trip was to Japan. I went there as a United States Ambassador when I was 17 with a singing group I founded. I have since been to China, Korea, Thailand, Cambodia, Mexico, France, Spain, Guatemala, Dubai, Kenya, Bali, Brazil, England, Hungary, Czech Republic and several other islands & countries. One of my goals for the coming years is to explore more of the United States and check some of the boxes on my bucket list like Iceland and Australia.

Convenient, comfortable and host was very helpful

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using VRBO and we really were so pleased with our host, Anthony, and his home. The condo and rooms in it were nice sized and the kitchen was well appointed with what was needed for our stay. The beds and pillows were extremely comfortable as well. Anthony reached out to us with information before we even got to Chicago and pleasantly kept in touch with us checking if we had any questions or if anything could make our stay more comfortable several times during our trip. The WiFi worked well and we were very close to the L train which took us into downtown Chicago. I would stay here again if visiting the city. Thank you Anthony!

Well-appointed 3 bedroom property

  • 5 of 5

Anthony was very responsive to all inquiries and even spent time talking me through how to find the parking lot for which he gave us free parking at in downtown. The property was nicely decorated and comfortable for our group of 5. Parking was free and directly in front of the house.

Beyond Anthony's control is the neighborhood. I did feel a little concerned on the drive from the highway to the house. I passed several boarded up homes along the way, but Anthony's block is nice. It appears the neighborhood is improving and that takes time. Once we were settled into the property we felt completely safe and would not hesitate to return. It was very quiet.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

The Garden Apartment was nicely decorated, very clean, good location, easy street parking. Beds were comfortable. Anthony was helpful with advice for getting around, and even gave us a parking pass to shop downtown. He let us know ahead of time that the stove did not work, but that was not a problem, as we only ate breakfast there. Great Place, we would stay again.

This is the second time we chose to stay here for our holiday visit.

As usual, the apartment was ready, clean and inviting. The owner is

friendly and responds immediately to inquires. We always enjoy our stay and recommend it without hesitation.

Lots of room.. close to medical center

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room, linens, even food in this apt. We stayed there pre & postop during a recent surgery. Comfortable beds with extra space for daughters who flew up for the weekend. Kitchen very convenient; we went to local grocery and made

my recovery easier & so much better than a hotel!
